Dense, gray, rain clouds are "angry", like this:
Tot asked if we remembered "Michael". In trying to figure out who Michael was (his dad's friend, who we call Mikey), we asked what he looked like. "He looks liiiiike....a genius." For what it's worth, we told Mikey this story, and Mikey believes Tot to be gifted in the art of reading people.
Tot is still taking karate (taekwondo?). He really is doing well. He has nunchucks as part of his equipment. At the school, they call them "Ssahng Jeol Bahngs". He is allowed to practice with his "real" ones, but not play with them so that the foam outer covering isn't damaged. We got him some for play. He is a fan.
One would think that a sweet, innocent angel as pictured below couldn't possibly use an ugly word like "shi-it" in the middle of a crowded restaurant patio. One would be wrong. One would also be wrong if one thought I didn't laugh the first time he said it because it was so, so out of the blue and unexpected.
Tot finished up a week of swim lessons. He did a great job and showed a lot of progress. If anything, he is dangerously over confident in his own abilities, but it is a relief to see him finally relax enough in the water to fully enjoy it.
MH found him sound asleep yesterday morning with his favorites snuggled in tight. He also found his legs.
Tot's new shoes arrived yesterday. He does indeed LOVE them. "I love these shoes more than Silky." Well, okay then. They are pretty spectacular.
This morning, Tot placed Silky on our bed and said, "Goodbye, Silky. See you later." [higher pitched voice] "Goodbye, Tot!"
He has been complaining of hip pain intermittently for several days. Since he complained at daycare yesterday, we decided to take him to the doctor today (nothing serious and no detectable problem). I told him that I would be picking him up to take him to the doctor later. He asked, "When do I get to be a doctor?" I told him about school, college (like Teen), medical school. I asked what kind of doctor he would like to be. "A red doctor." For the knowledge of all: "A red doctor helps people and gives them super hero bandaids. They can pick out any bandaid they want."
